Polish Mint Issues 90th Anniversary of Battle of Warsaw Silver Coin

August 12, 2010: The Mint of Poland (Mennica Polska) in conjunction with the National Bank of Poland, has issued this eye-catching and poignant commemorative 20 zloty silver coin to mark the 90th anniversary of the famous Battle of Warsaw.

Poland 2010 20Zl Battle Of Warsaw Silver Proof

One of few full colour coins produced by the Mint of Poland, featuring a blazing interpretation of the 1920 Battle of Warsaw, this sensational new 38.61mm 28.28g sterling silver Proof is expected to be one of the hottest European issues of 2010.

Whilst headlined by the gripping "3-dimensional" full-colour design, this coin is just as notable for the superb portrait of Polish Commander-in-Chief and Head of State, J√≥zef Pilsudski, younger brother of leading anthropologist Bronislaw Pilsudski. The mastermind behind Poland’s stunning victory in the Battle of Warsaw during the Polish-Soviet War, Pilsudski’s triumph sparked a revival that saved Polish independence – and arguably saved Western Europe from the Bolsheviks.

Sure to be highly sought after worldwide, with the mintage set at 50,000 to accommodate widespread demand, this vivid 90th anniversary tribute to the Battle of Warsaw is a military commemorative of great poignancy and great quality.

Each silver coin is encapsulated and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
